1962 17' Century Resorter

Here’s a Resorter that was in very sad shape indeed. Rotten engine stringers, some bad frames, parts of the shelf rotted away as well as much of the covering boards. The boat really needed a new bottom and more frame replacement, but the owner was on a very tight budget and decided to wait on the bottom for now. He asked me to replace the vinyl fore and aft decks with mahogany for a better overall appearance. This, of course, required the addition of supporting battens.

We repaired the port side shelf, the covering boards, scarfed in new engine stringers aft of the engine with epoxy and additional sistered stringers, sistered some weak frames, and one port side plank. Installed mahogany decks. The owner plans to refinish the boat himself over the winter. Time needed to complete - two weeks.
